Pagan Interest Circle: Who We Are


The Pagan Interest Circle (PICT) Invites You into Our Full Moon Circle This Saturday, March 4 at 7:00 pm in the Chapel.

Each night now, Dark Winter retreats until it loses its grip on the Wheel of the Year at the Spring Equinox, just weeks away. March is riding in on the wind and rain, thunder and hail storms this year, reminding us that Element of Air is ascendant in the Spring. Yellow is the color of early spring. In the North, crocuses and early tulips push through the thawing earth and the slender flowers of witch hazel splash yellow on branches whose buds have not yet leafed. Here, you can see yellow daffodils and blooming forsythia branches for sale in supermarkets and on street flower carts.

Gardner's know that when the spring plants that grow from bulbs first flower, they mark the time for seeds and the seedlings already started in peat pots and hothouses to be planted in the ground. 

This Saturday, March 4, at 7:00 pm., the Pagan Interest Circle (PICT) invites you to our Full Moon Circle. We'll gather in the Chapel, dig our hands into the ground, and perform a ritual planting. It is time to take the first actions toward manifesting our desires in our life. What are you going to grow this year? What will you plant?

It's time to plant: bring your own seeds or feel free to use the ones we'll have on hand.

Pagan Interest Circle: Text


For over 20 years the Pagan Interest Circle (PICT) of the First Unitarian  Universalist Church Society of San Francisco, a Chapter organization of  CUUPS, has been meeting for monthly Full Moon Rituals on the Saturday evening closest to the Full Moon, and for the solar pagan holidays of Winter Solstice and  Beltane. We are an open circle dedicated to providing ritual space for all respectful families and individuals of any age. Our policy requires that our rituals are clean and sober, drugs, alcohol, fragrance and animal free. Individuals who rely on an animal companion are welcome but will need to secure their animal away from the the ritual room/space.
